The autumn season is always a great time to travel in the UK, bringing beautiful scenery, crisp autumnal days, warm pubs, open fires and fun festivals or food markets to visit on a road trip around the countryside.
PREPARE THE CAR
With that in mind, here are a few ways to prepare for an autumn road trip or weekend getaway. First, make sure that your car is primed – the tank is full, the interior is cleaned out and your Aviva insurance policy is all up-to-date.
PLAN YOUR ROUTE
Look at what local events or festivals are happening so you can plan your route around visiting as much as possible. Whether it’s a beautiful old village or a local beer/music festival, this season offers a huge amount of culture and entertainment across the UK.
